Trainspotting. (First edition, first printing)
True first edition first printing. “The first edition of Irvine Welsh’s first and best-known book. It made its author a celebrity, and put contemporary Scottish fiction at the forefront of UK writing. Known to many from the hugely successful film version, this book is also a good illustration of the partnership between film and book. Until recent times the first edition of a novel would have been in hard-back form, but the true first edition of Trainspotting is this paperback edition.” (National Library of Scotland)
